For the past few weeks I have had a lot of trouble sleeping and usually end up awake way into the wee small hours.
Last night was one of the worst for a while. Although I dropped off pretty quickly around 10:30 p.m. I was suddenly wide awake again at midnight.
I gathered up my pillow and duvet and toddled off to the sofa where I could read and browse online without disturbing P. I often find it more relaxing to lie on the sofa looking out at the hills in the dark and watching the lights shining out down at the castle. We never close the curtains in the living room so I get an uninterrupted view at night.
By 3 a.m. I was still wide awake, just gazing out of the windows and was entranced by the quality of the light shining into the room from the moon high above the garden. It was incredibly bright, but with that iconic cold, silvery glow.
I got up to find my 'phone to take a photo.
Unfortunately the clouds had started to roll in by the time I was ready to take any pictures so this is the best I could manage.
